WorkForce enables you to set the Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for better security against unauthorized access into the system.
Global Administrators have the possibility of enforcing the use of 2FA for other users via the checkbox in the Manage Users section. Moreover, all users on WorkForce can also set up the 2FA function on their own account.
